This work shop provides a Survival Guide to parenting adolescents and young adults. As many young people go through the teenage years they seem to become more distant from their parents and other adults around them. Often communication with them becomes more difficult and may become more stressful. This workshop is suitable for parents and teachers and will look at ways that might help to keep the channel of communication open and positive.
